Making a difference in 2017
We’re ready to ring in the new year at The City Mission, but before we do, we want to thank our incredible partners for making a difference this year. With their help, we were able to:
- Provide more than 50,000 nights of shelter to women and children in crisis. Without this emergency shelter, these families would be sleeping on the street.
- Replace the roof at Laura’s Home after it was damaged by a windstorm last spring. Our partners raised $30,000 to cover our insurance deductible and the cost of relocating the guests affected by the storm.
- Offer Biblical grounding, licensed counseling, mental health care, and employment training to men and women in desperate need of a fresh start.
We’re tremendously grateful for all the Lord has done this year, but we think George, one of our guests, says it best:
“People like me come into situations like this, and we’re looking for help. I’m grateful for this opportunity because it gave me a chance to get a hold of myself. If it weren’t for the donors, we wouldn’t be able to get where we are. I’m just thankful – we couldn’t do it without you.”
Please give today, and become a part of the life-changing work of The City Mission. Let’s celebrate together as hurting people find new hope!
